FREIBURG, Germany, January 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The UBM Jewellery & Gem Fair Group, with a total of 19 trade shows, in 9 countries and regions, is the largest and most experienced organisers of jewellery and gem fairs around the world and this year will mark their 20 year anniversary of providing professional jewellery sourcing platforms, which are an integral part of the jewellery and gem industry. In 2013, UBM offered business opportunities to more than 10,000 exhibitors and 100,000 visitors with its jewellery fairs in China, Hong Kong, Japan, India, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and Russia. UBM is now launching the first international sourcing fair in Europe, with the addition of the much anticipated Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe, held in Freiburg, Germany from 1-4 April 2014.
"In our view, Freiburg has a variety of key benefits for the jewellery and gem industry," explains Celine Lau, Director of Jewellery Fairs, UBM Asia. "Freiburg is conveniently located in the epicentre of major industry centres, with its German borders neighbouring France and Switzerland, also making the city easily accessible to Antwerp, Paris, Basel and Geneva, with each city being less than two hours away. It was also very important to us, to be close to major German jewellery cities, such as Pforzheim and Idar Oberstein. The jewellery and gem industry provides 11,000 jobs alone in Pforzheim and its surrounding areas."
Freiburg holds century old traditions in the industries of jewellery and precious metals. Freiburg's wealth and notoriety is based on, among many other things, silver ore from the nearby Black Forest. After the city purchased its independence in 1368, the area grew into the city of jewels it is today. This was led by the jewellery trade, with "borers" and "burnishers" (polishers) making rosary beads and later becoming precious stone cutters, turning out garnets, amethysts, carnelians and even corals into an abundance of jewellery and art. The City of Freiburg and Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe will be offering special tours to discover the city and learn more about its history, during the fair.
Apart from the city's great history and traditions, there are also many other qualities to this pearl of the Black Forest, and the site for Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe. Freiburg is one of the German cities with the highest quality of life. It is also the warmest city in the region, where residents hold a certain "savoir vivre". The weather, the restaurants and hotels, the scenery, make this city a paradise for food lovers from all around the world. This year alone, The Michelin Guide has awarded five separate restaurants in Freiburg and the surrounding area, each, with one of their coveted stars.
"Freiburg is a jewel in the international exhibition scene," said Celine Lau. "This beautiful city, in an ideal location, fantastic hotels and restaurants along with a high level jewellery sourcing platform, offers visitors genuine value." Apart from the placement as the first sourcing-based jewellery and gem fair in Europe, which showcases renowned international and European exhibitors, there is ample reason for the well received welcome, from in the entire industry. The show is already 100% booked, with over 400 exhibitors from 30 countries and regions. The initial launch attracted 12 group pavilions from Antwerp, Colombia, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Italy, Mauritius, Russia, Turkey, Thailand and United States. The importance of Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is also supported by the city, with the Lord Mayor personally opening the fair.
Celine Lau: "Jewellery & Gem Fair Europe is of great importance for UBM and for the city of Freiburg. We are working together in every way to make the show a complete success and the first signs are already very promising."

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...
